Planning a ground-up property wedding is no small feat! We love starting from scratch with a blank space and a dream! From initial site inspection to final load out the days/weeks after the wedding, we lead you through all of it.
Whether you're looking to completely transform your venue space or just want a really stylish and seamlessly produced event, we can help make your venue wedding the best event your guests have ever attended.
In addition to weddings, we also love a pretty party! Whether it's a vow renewal, anniversary party, bridal shower, or engagement party, we offer our full services on a smaller scale for these smaller celebrations.
Since we are so involved with each of our clients, we take a select number of clients per year and are not able to offer partial or day-of services only. Feel free to send us an email and we're happy to help direct you to great local planners who offer these services!
We welcome a consult with all budgets, but will be honest with you if we feel your budget does not fit the scoping you envision or the services you are inquiring about! Transparency is important to us and we are happy to help steer you in the right direction for a vendor team that is a good fit for you. We've found that most clients looking for full service wedding planning are working with roughly $200+/guest overall budget.
We're happy to offer virtual hourly consulting if you are hoping to just pick our brain!
We love nothing more than traveling! That's a win in our book if we get to travel AND produce a beautiful wedding. We've been to Montana, Napa, Arizona, and Mexico for events. Feel free to inquire about destination services for your tented or venue wedding outside of the Midwest!
We do! We're looking forward to launching our rentals division in July 2023 along with our studio completion! Stay tuned and visit our rentals page for more information!
FINDING THE SCOPE
We work in a phased approach and the first step is determining the overall scope of the event. This includes site visit and discovery meetings, sourcing and building the vendor team, developing the planning calendar, creating the full working budget, and determining the details and needs for the event. We're also your resource for anything from etiquette to family dynamics to inclement weather plans.
Custom design is a multi-layered process and where the the fun comes in - We produce a personalized design portfolio filled with sketches, swatches, photos, and layouts covering all of the details for your wedding.
Once designed, we manage all the details: food & beverage, floral, décor, rentals, entertainment, ceremony, transportation, timelines and productions schedules. We communicate alongside you or with your businesses directly as your liaison.
INVITATIONS & PRINT WORK DESIGN
We offer in-house invitation and print work design, including programs, escort cards, menus, wedding signage, & mail and rsvp management.
On your wedding week we have three roles: we lead the set up and tear down with the other businesses, manage the schedule, and guide the wedding party and guests through the day. As always, there are unexpected things (midwest weather!) that may happen. We handle those too. There is no such thing as perfection. But there is such a thing as a wedding that’s perfect for you. Our job is to create that.

Summer is a godsend when it comes to planning an event! I moved to the area from NY and had very high expectations for bringing an east coast wedding here to Wisconsin. We were hesitant, at first, to work with a wedding planner but this was the best decision we made. Summer helped us navigate through rescheduling our wedding twice and then through all of the ups and downs associated with COVID. She was always responsive, she offered great solutions to any potential problems, and she had every base covered on our day. After working with her, I'm really not sure how anyone does this without an experienced planner! I especially loved her attention to detail and the recommendations that she made for décor and catering. From the very start, she knew what our vision was and she executed it perfectly.

I cannot recommend them enough -- absolutely fabulous. My mom has helped plan my siblings weddings and we weren't sure we really "needed" a planner, but it was the best decision ever to hire Summer! It made the entire planning process ENJOYABLE and unforgettable for my mom, myself and my hubby. Summer helped us create the wedding of my dreams. She was so good at identifying our tastes and style to create something that was totally ours. She took all the stress out of planning and gave me complete peace of mind through out the entire process that our wedding was going to be incredible. I loved working with Summer and would 100% recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring a wedding planner!!
